ABC News reported that a group of individuals demonstrating in support of Palestine in Texas were released without facing any charges following a decision made by a district attorney’s office supported by Soros.

The protests, known as “Popular University for Gaza,” resulted in the arrest of 34 individuals on the University of Texas Austin’s campus on Wednesday, as stated by ABC.

Legal concerns were raised by defense counsel. We individually reviewed each case that was presented and agreed there were deficiencies in the probable cause affidavits.

The Court affirmed and ordered the release of those individuals. We will continue to individually review all cases presented to our office to determine whether prosecution is factually and legally appropriate,” the Travis County Attorney’s Office said.

According to campaign finance documents, José Garza, the District Attorney for Travis County, where UT Austin is situated, has received donations amounting to almost $500,000 from organizations funded by George Soros, such as the Texas Justice & Public Safety PAC.

TransparencyUSA.com reveals that Soros was the main contributor to the PAC, contributing over $2 million.

Influence Watch states that the PAC serves as the Texas branch of Soros’ Safety and Justice network, which financially supports left-wing District Attorneys nationwide and has invested millions in various races throughout the country.

The PAC came under fire from Garza’s 2020 primary opponent “The amount of money being poured into the district attorney’s race is alarming and abhorrent. Local elections should be decided by people from this community, free from the crushing influence of outside spending by PACs that are not accountable to this county,” the previous DA Margaret Moore said.

Prior to his current role, Garza held the position of Deputy General Counsel for the House Committee on Education and Labor under the leadership of Tom Perez.

Additionally, he served as a senior policy official at the U.S. Department of Labor, working closely with Tom Perez.

According to an Arnold Ventures profile, during his tenure as a public defender, Garza actively engaged in immigration activism.

He also played a pivotal role in leading the Workers’ Defense Project, an organization dedicated to empowering low-wage working individuals, particularly those from undocumented and communities of color, as he shared with Arnold Ventures.

In the past, Texas Republicans have strongly criticized Garza for his lenient approach toward crime and the adverse effects his policies have had on the city of Austin.

“We have a district attorney now that is more concerned about prosecuting cops than criminals,” Republican Texas Rep. Mike McCaul said.

“There is a silent majority here and we are going to start standing up for our police officers.”
